Obama Signature On Monsanto Protection Act Ignites Massive Activism

While Monsanto executives may be rejoicing behind the closed doors of their corporate offices, they have also just stabbed themselves in the heart with the blatant and cocky decision to go through with the Monsanto Protection Act. Obama’s social media profiles are being blown up with thousands of enraged activists and concerned citizens who are demanding answers.

Thanks to the alternative news covering every angle of the Protection Act and the absurd fact that Monsanto actually wrote the rider itself, people have now come to fully understand just how deep the corruption goes when it comes to Monsanto’s Big Food monopoly. And it doesn’t exempt the President.

It’s a well known fact that the Obama family actually eats from the White House organic garden which was planted in 2009 and has full time staffers who maintain and harvest organic produce that comes from the garden. Many high level politicians actually refuse to eat anything but organic, as they are fully aware of what’s in ‘conventional’, GMO-loaded items. Yet, despite this knowledge, they are quite eager to push Monsanto’s GMOs and ruthless business model on the citizens of the United States.

And the people are fully aware of the betrayal.

Scanning just a few comments amid the thousands calling out Obama for his signature on the spending bill that contained the Monsanto Protection Act, we find seriously frustrated activists and voters who can’t believe what they are seeing. Even many Obama campaigners who came to the realization that Obama didn’t represent what they thought he did. One specifically mentions how Obama promised to label GMOs in 2007 upon taking the seat of the President. A promise that never came to fruition. In fact, no real attempts were made at all.

Here are a few comments among the thousands that I found interesting on Obama’s wall:

  • Darlene Taylor: Barack Obama – 2007: “We’ll let folks know if their food is genetically modified because Americans should know.” 2013: He signed the Monsanto Protection Act making GMO giants immune to the law.
  • Erica Ecker: Apparently part of protecting our children no longer includes what goes in them. Thanks for signing the Monsanto Protection Act.
  • Keri Kline: I am an activist for President Obama, and I am outraged he has failed to listen to the ‘American people he represents’… President Obama knowingly signed the Monsanto Protection Act over the insistence of more than 250,000 Americans who signed an urgent letter asking that he use his executive authority to veto H.R. 933 and send it back to Congress to remove the Monsanto Protection Act from the bill. Regretfully, President Obama failed to live up to his oath to protect the American people and our constitution.

Overall, the decision to go with such a major act of corruption has jump started a massive movement to hold politicians and corporations accountable for their betrayal of the US public. It’s a move that has blown up in the face of those who thought they could slip it through into law.

    An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who has been conducting a little research on this. And he actually bought me breakfast because I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this matter here on your website.

  • francisco

    I will like the President to tell me way he signed in favor of Monsanto.

  • Norbis

    why do you suppose montsanto would go through all the trouble to lobby the government to make themselves immune to lawsuits, unless they already know that their products cause some kinda terrible harm. i mean something huge like autism. it would have to be huge to justify this crap to their shareholders! it would have to be something they know they have 100% negligence and a 99.9% chance of losing a billion dollar class action lawsuit over in the next couple years. or else why bother with all this crap? think about it. what would phillip morris do?

  • Daniel Beck

    This action of rhat coward we call the president will help us clean house!! What a scum bag, I hope he chokes on a GMO turd.

  • Roger Jackosn

    As stated the man is a communist and Muslim . His only ambition is to bring this great country to its knees if we allow it. It's time we push congress to impeach him on criminal charges, so he can be put out of office.

  • Bruce

    DESPOTUS.

  • fred

    The man lies everytime he opens his mouth.Not the change some of y'all wanted, hu.

  • Black Eagle

    Anyone surprised at this Obama betrayal has been smoking dope, or suffering from the Obama Messiah Complex (the mirror image of the Bush Derangement Syndrome). The guy was a liar from day one. A communist and Islamist, who has no interest in the well-being of Americans. Michelle's organic garden was merely a hoax calculated to get some votes from the alternatives crowd. Their goal is to empower Big Brother government to dictate to everyone what to eat, say, believe, etc. So making a partnership with Monsanto today helps that goal. Tomorrow he'll turn on them, but not to your advantage. Only to his own. Unless you are a radical "comrade" black/hispanic or Marxist or Muslim fanatic, he has no use for you, except as a "useful idiot" to vote him into power. Now he is in power, and spits in your face. Grow up. Stop thinking he "betrayed" you. The problem is, you Obama voters all ignored the widespread warnings about him, about his lying, his shady past connections with the Chicago mob, with Muslim operatives, with Communist terrorists, with Black African murderers, etc. You ignored all his connections, as reported in the conservative media (ie, on Fox and by the radio talkers, whom you spat upon). You chose to ignore the warnings, and now boo hoo he spits in your face. So what will you do about it? Keep voting for the communist Democrat Party and you will be lucky if the FDA and USDA allow any organic farms to remain open. You think SWAT raids on raw milk cheese sellers is all they got in mind? How about shutting down your local coops and health food stores by SWAT raiders? Just wait and watch. it is coming, especially with fascist "Obama-care", which you also LOOVED, but haven't a clue what socialized medicine is all about.

    • Ryan

      Wow, just wow.

      Dude, a republican was the one who wrote in the rider in the reconciliation bill. What the Rethuglican party has done for the past years now is hold out til the last available minute and then throw back their rebuttal bill which includes whatever the hell they want to throw in there(cough cough, monsanto). The real issue of this HUGE bill was to get benefits to people who needed it, to make sure they got what they were promised. What the Rethuglican party wants is to throw in something extra in the bill, and make Obama look bad whether he signs the bill or not. If he had not signed this particular bill, you'd be grilling him for not getting finances in line for the people who benefit from it, and not even mention the fact that the Monsanto rider got denied…just like how you're not mentioning a word about all the good things this bill does now that it has been signed.

      • Andy C.

        Much of what Black Eagle says is correct and can be proven. Ryan, your theory of Obama having a gun to his head to sign this bill because of people's "benefits" is wrong. Obama could have very easily used the "bully pulpit" to expose this provision and make wide spread plees to his voters and his supporters to pressure the Senate, which the dems control, to strip this provision of the bill, but that's not what he did was it? He signed it. We have seen him continuously campaign issues to the American people flying all over the nation to push agendas he was advanced, anti 2nd amendment gun control, Obamacare, the Dodd/Frank bill, free birth control for women, ect, always refusing to sign anythin
        that he didn't agree with. Now we are supposed to believe he had "no choice" and it was the "evil" republicans? LOL. All you liberals had better wake up. This guy and his administration of control don't care about you! You are what Marx and Lenin called the "useful idiots" that brought Lenin into power and then he treated them worse than the Czar ever did! It is time to admit that the Founders were right in their view of a limited federal govt and the empowerment of the peopleand your Marxist college professors hiding in tenure protected academia where real results don't matter were wrong! Grasp, understand and defend our Constitution which limits the federal govts powers and protects YOUR freedoms before it's too late!

  • dogitydog

    Garrett,
    So what you are saying is that it's ok for Obama to sacrifice the health and well being of the American citizens because he has a gun to his head? If he has a gun to his head it is because he put himself in that position. If he can't handle the job then why did he apply for it? We are talking about taking preventitive action to stop a corporation from deliberately harming the citizens. Now that he has signed the bill, we can no longer prevent it. His primary purpose as the president of the United States of America is his responsibility to the American citizens that elected him. He is the only person that had the power to stop this from happening but chose not to do so. Don't make excuses for this liar.

  • Garrett

    Not one person is mentioning Roy Blunt (Senate Republican) here – the guy who wrote it with Monsanto and stuck into the Senate Budget Reconciliation bill – that if vetoed would have shut down the government. I think Obama should have made an issue of it, should come out and discuss it with the public, but to blame him entirely for this is BS. Obama didn't write the bill, and HR933 was a small piece that Sen Blunt stuck into the big bill. Look at who passed the MF bil, Congress! And yes Obama signed it – but with a gun to his head. What he needs to do is call them out on it. HR933 is also only effective for a year…not sure what happens after that…but there you go.

  • Renee

    If all you are going to do is post propaganda then I refuse to continue getting your newsletter. How about telling the truth about the so called Monsanto protection act instead of inspiring fear like a republican trick. For those who choose to believe this hogwash I invite you to actually take a look at hr 933 which contains a single paragraph stating that farmers, growers, etc can use whatever seed they want without government interference. No where does it state Monsanto. Also hr 933 is an appropriations bill which means in 6 months everything written it ends as a new one has to be passed to replace it. Or better yet talk about the fact that military, veterans, farmers, people on food stamps and wic to name a few would have been without benefits or pay had Obama vetoed it.

    • Black Eagle

      As a practical matter, when patented Monsanto seed blows out into the neighboring fields, those farmers get sued for "using Monsanto seed", so the issue of merely deciding what seed to plant is de-facto thrown out the window in favor of Monsanto. And please you make a sick joke to claim the Republicans are spreading fear when Obama himself has been on TV speaking about how police and firemen, teachers, etc., are all going to be tossed out of jobs — like cancelling the White House tours while he and family jet off to multi-million-dollar vacations. You just did the scarey talk yourself "…would have been without benefits or pay had Obama vetoed it". That's BS and you have drunk the Obama Messiah Complex Kool Aid!

    • Glenda

      Thank you! Finally someone who knows what's really going on! The rest of this bunch are truly ignorant or just don't wish to know the truth!

    Not to pop her bubble but the WH garden was planted in soil that the Clintons had spread with municipal waste as was much of the WH property. The WH garden was and can never be certified as "Organic"

  • Diane

    We still have the upper hand! Don't buy the crap! We rule the market. If people start buying from farmer's markets and growing their own food, companies will listen. If the stores can't sell it, they will not buy it!!

  • Anonymous

    No wonder that autism is so rampant as well as cancer.

  • Cliff

    The fact that everyone is surprised by this is laughable. Of course the stooge on a short leash signed the protection act for these douche bags! Whoever thought that the Obamadable snow job was their savior, is a complete idiot.

    Same as the rest, the man is a pimple on the beasts back and nothing more so when he's told to jump..he jumps, when he's told to sit idly by and watch, he sits idly by and watches, and when he's told to spend shit loads of money on his personal vacations while the country struggles well, he apparently does that as well! There's unfortunately nothing new here save for more of the same. Pay more attention to your country people..

    Cheers

  • Marlena

    I'm not convinced that Obama has free rein over all his decisions. By many accounts, our planet is being controlled by a group of powerful people who control governments and have ways to make sure things go the way they want. The president of the Unites States is not immune to the power they wield. I think Obama is doing his best but Monsanto has been quietly doing its dirty work for a long time and their tentacles reach far into our food chain. These people don't see the general populace as human beings with a right to freedom and well-being. They see us as an expendable resource.

    • Abagail Reveal

      Really? Obama doesn’t have free rein over his decisions? Soooo he really IS just a puppet?

      Dear goodness! ….”Doesn’t have free rein over his decisions!” Not only is that laughable, that has to be one of the most ludicrous comments I’ve read in a while. Surely you didn’t really mean that statement. It was tongue in cheek, right??

      EVERY person in America has FREE REIN over THEIR decisions. Each of us decides if we are going to be responsible citizens. Each of us chooses to either take the easier softer way or actually stand up for what is right, regardless of the consequences.

      As an executive in corporate America, I had to make a choice between protecting my job or making the morally right and ethical decision. I choose to do the right thing. And it has cost me my job!

      So be it!! I have no problem looking myself in the mirror!

      Shouldn’t the POTUS do the right thing for the American people, and not dance to the tune of a corrupt fiddler? One would think so but they’d be wrong. Sad. Shameful. And just plain WRONG.

  • Toni

    I suppose my expectations were too high in the beginning, but I'm disappointed in the president for many reasons. This is just unbelieveable.

  • mario

    Obama Obama Obama! !! Hum?

  • Lisa C

    He feels he is above the law, because his supporters have allowed him to act like he is.

  • Chris

    Why the heck would Obama really care now about signing that bill when after this term he can’t run again for president, so the fact he actually passed this bill, in 4 years he’s not gonna care that he signed it because when his term is up then anything he signed into law won’t concern him whatsoever, and the only reason he bothered to sign it through is the millions of dollars his election campaign received from Monsanto and its sister companies for him to get re-elected so he could sign that bill into law, it all comes down to one thing and one thing only, GREED and the all mighty dollar. Plain and simple.

  • Alex

    Also google “india farmer suicides”

  • Nicole

    Absolutely sickening what this man is doing to our country! It’s sad how many people are so blinded by his actions…

  • AVALONIA

    Ok, so heres the thing….WE MUST ACTIVATE OUR ENERGY FIELDS AND PROTECT OURSELVES!! WE CANNOT WAIT FOR WHATS IN OUR FOOD TO BE PRINTED ON THE LABELS, WE MUST BE MORE RESPONSIBLE THAN THIS…COME ON PEOPLE. WE GOT THIS, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE ARE SPIRITUAL BEINGS HAVING A HUMAN EXPERIENCE, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. SO WHAT DOES THAT SAY. MAY YOU AWAKEN TO YOUR TRUTH. ONCE YOU DO, NOTHING MONSANTO DOES WILL AFFECT YOU.
    PLEASE KNOW THIS IS TRUE. ACTIVATE YOUR LIGHT BODY, AND NOTHING CAN PENETRATE YOU. PRACTICE THE ART OF TRANSMUTATION OF ENERGETIC TRANSMUTATION.

    Paddy…
    Simply incorrect.

    There are ways to plant non GMO crops in every climate to maximize food production. Truth is, we already have enough food to feed 7 billion people. We have the space and mechanical and scientific technologies and knowledge. There is not the political which is really big corporations or mufti-national corporations will to do so. It does not just come down to money- that is simply one vehicle of control… it is about control. Control money, housing, water rights and food….you have control over the populaces.

    It does not matter who is in office there is a much larger political agenda moving these decisions. The details are just that, many ties to a larger web of centralized mufti-national corporate control.

    • Antonio

      100%agreed. There is a bigger plan in place. They want to control the population. Once you have control or the food. The rest is history

  • Paddy

    Have any of you loud people ever taken a college level genetics class? I doubt it. Angry short people that love to join the band wagon and rant. I enjoy my organic produce from my garden. But with all the morons overbreeding the only way to feed them all is with increased production provided by GMO's.

    • Nikolai

      Do your homework Paddy before launching into print. What evidence there is at present shows that GMOs lead to DECREASED productivity, not to mention needing increased spraying with herbicides to deal with the increasing numbers of glyphosate-resistant weeds. It's all a tissue of carefully crafted lies. Look at the evidence.

      • Raine

        Not to mention that these genetically altered foods are killing off the honey bees by up to 50% this year….without the bees, no pollination, no food,no us. I want my vote back!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Jeff

      Sounds like you're the moron, Paddy!

      http://www.motherjones.com/tom-philpott/2013/02/d

      some info about yield drag; "Overall, the report uncovers evidence of what is known as "yield drag"—the idea that manipulating the genome of a plant variety causes unintended changes in the way it grows, causing it to be less productive."

      this stuff isn't covered in freshmen level genetics, take a few upper level courses.

    • Healthy Mom

      Oh, Paddy,
      Do you really think that morons are doing the peer reviewed studies? Those same prove the damage these corporate giants are doing by trying to make a profit off the people.

      I made A’s in Genetics and in Cell Biology. My two favorite classes, in fact. In fact, while I was pre-med, I remember them telling us how wonderful BT Corn was. But it doesn’t take a college education to look at the facts and see the harm that GMO foods are doing to this country.

      Do your research yourself instead of blindly following propaganda like the sheep you are.

    • Erascus

      so help the farmers not the corporations

    • Howard

      Hey Paddy. Why would MOST of the countries around the world BAN GMOs if it was a good product and less expensive? Maybe because they've been doing EXTENSIVE research into GMOs and the TOXIC and POISONS genetically infused into them? The GMOs have built in pesticides to ward off pests causing GENETIC MUTATIONS in honey bees that cause CANCER and organ FAILURE.

      Talk about "loud people" or "angry short people".

      My question is, How moronic is someone that calls others morons when they themselves are mentally challenged?

    I am 1 of the millions who have been damaged by a Fluoroquilone Med, I have spent the last amost 5 years detoxing my body, the mere fact is I was poisoned once already because our government/FDA refuses to mandate a "black Box" warning about these poison toxic meds, I can only eat totally organic foods, if I even smell, GMO foods, my body reacts terribly, crippling pain etc. so now I will be exposed to more poison by our government, so very sad…If you have ever taken a Fluoroquilone antibiotic and suddenly experience brain fog, bone/muscle pain, ruptured tendons, CNS, PNS, you might have been "floxed", check out http://www.saferpills.com

    I want an apology from the President of the United States. Or,if not an apology, a detailed explanation of why he signed a bill that has the potential to sign the death warrant of the vast number of unknowing Americans who do not understand the consequences of ingesting Genetically Modified Organisms. The president was elected to protect the people, not to kill them.

  • belinda

    there is no dispute–even amongst those who are ignorant or neutral to the deadly consequences and effects of our food being poisoned at every single phase before it reaches our bodies– that the business of Monsanto’s ONLY goal is to Make money off our overpopulation, lessened economy, ignorance and blind faith that our Gvt still protects its people — no matter whom it deforms, disables, or makes sick. I generally try to suspend critisisms of our President, but when his own wife has worked so hard to fight childhood obesity–which many of Monsantos poisons actually spurr, I am afraid i have now resigned to becoming overtly disapproving of him. Like SO many Americans have. Shame on you President Obama.
